Thanks to the Mentor Foundation for the scholarship, I am more confident I will achieve my dreams and pursue my passions. Having this assistance will allow me to focus on school and become a mentor myself.
I come from a small family, parents and a younger brother. I live in a small town and the best part of that is you experience city and country life. I value my parents very much. I have watched them give everything even as things look like they will fall apart. I didn’t think I would be able to go to college, but now I am a first generation student. My parents are very proud that I’m making a difference not only in the family, but for others in this world. They told me I have a good story to tell the world and I can inspire people. My parents have taught me many valuable lessons, such as integrity, working hard, put your best feet forward even if it’s hard, make every moment count, and many more. The saying,“Our parents know everything,” is true. The best decision my parents made is finding a mentor for me.
